Street in downtown South Bend temporarily renamed to Fighting Irish Drive
This is hilarious.
In downtown South Bend, where Notre Dame’s campus is located, there is a street named Michigan Street. Seems odd, but then again, it’s a state name on a street. We’ve all seen it before.
Of course the odd part here is that Notre Dame is hosting Michigan in Week 1 of the college football season this Saturday. The game is scheduled for a 7:30 p.m. start and will be televised on NBC.
With the top 15 matchup in mind, Michigan Street’s name apparently had to be changed for the time being.
That's cute, Notre Dame. https://t.co/lcWznNPiS0

As @MichiganOnBTN said on Twitter, that’s really cute, Notre Dame. According to the AP Preseason Poll, the Wolverines enter as the nation’s No. 14 team, while the Fighting Irish are at No. 12.
